Winter Garden Planning Checklist


Preparing your garden for winter can be a daunting task. Start by checking the soil temperature to make sure it is below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Look for any signs of pests or disease, and prune any dead or diseased branches and leaves. Fertilize the soil to help plants grow and add mulch to retain moisture and protect plants from cold temperatures. Water plants as needed, and cover them with a frost blanket or other protective covering if temperatures drop below freezing. Monitor the weather forecast for any extreme temperatures, and harvest any vegetables or fruits that are ready to be picked. Finally, clean up the garden by removing any dead or diseased plants and debris. With these steps, you can ensure your garden is ready for the winter season.
